VTCT Level 2 NVQ Diploma in Nail Services
The VTCT Level 2 NVQ Diploma in Nail Services is a substantial vocational qualification for learners seeking a career as an employed and/or self-employed nail technician. This qualification is based on the nail services National Occupational Standards (NOS) and is recognised by the UK’s leading professional bodies (The British Association of Beauty Therapy and Cosmetology (BABTAC) and the Federation of Holistic Therapists (FHT)) as being fit for purpose for preparing learners for a career as a junior nail technician.
Entry onto this qualification can be via previous attainment of a Level 1 qualification in beauty therapy and/or a successful skills test and interview.
Why is this qualification most suitable?
This is one of two VTCT qualifications in nail services at Level 2. Whilst both qualifications qualify learners to become nail technicians and gain employment at a junior level, this qualification requires learners to work in a commercial beauty salon, whereby assessments must be carried out on real paying clients in line with the commercial service times. In contrast, the VTCT Level 2 Certificate in Nail Technology can be achieved through gathering evidence in a college’s realistic working environment without the need for real paying clients. Hence, this qualification is for learners seeking to work in and develop their skills in a commercial setting and can only be delivered by colleges that have or have access to a ‘real’ salon and not a realistic working environment.
